Ed Sheeran Reveals Tiny Detail About His 'Game Of Thrones' Character

With only a few more months until the seventh season of the HBO series premieres, more information is being leaked about what will happen.

As we know, singer Ed Sheeran will be making a cameo, as well as fighter Conor McGregor.

Apparently, Masie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is a massive fan of the chart-topping singer-songwriter, and creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss have been wanting to bring Sheeran on set to surprise her.

It's been unclear as to whether the 'Galway Girl' singer will be helping Daenerys and her dragons, sipping wine with Cersei, helping out Bran or any other possible role.

Until now.

He's told The Hits Radio: "I do a scene with Maisie. I sing a song and then she goes, 'Oh, that's a nice song'."


Well that's a little bit exciting. But, to be honest, if Ed was on any show you'd expect him to sing, because he's pretty good.

But he's no stranger to the silver screen. His first appearance on a TV came during his audition for Britannia High, a British musical drama on ITV. His singing was definitely up to scratch but he left less of a mark when the judges asked him to dance.

That was way before he was even remotely famous. But he didn't let that affect him, going on to make his proper acting debut in 2014 for the New Zealand soap opera Shortland Street.

That was followed in 2015 by another cameo an episode of the NBC sitcom Undateable. While he was touring Australia he also recorded a scene for the Australian soap Home and Away playing the role of 'Teddy'.

Sheeran shouldn't have much trouble adjusting to the Game of Thrones set considering his last performance was for the medieval drama The Bastard Executioner on FX. Ed told the Sun: "It's gruesome and it's going to be fine because my friend wrote it... I feel like people would expect me to be in a rom-com or something, so I wanted to be in something people don't expect me to."

He also made a small cameo in last year's Bridget Jones's Baby, in which he performed at a concert.

Game of Thrones will premiere on July 16 and naturally everyone wants to know what will happen. HBO released the first official promo two months ago and it looks sick.

The new teaser features Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen on a long walk towards their thrones, ending with a chilly hint that ruling the seven kingdoms is the least of their problems.

Season seven will feature seven episodes, while season eight will only have six.
